Global warming doesn't exist

hesch

Thank you for accepting this challenge, I would just like to say that I do not intend on bashing your beliefs for any reason, but I believe that global warming does not exist. in fact, there are many scientists who do not believe in global warming, 31,000 American scientists to be more accurate, so trying to say you have science on the side of global warming is clearly not as convincing as many people think. Al Gore, who is obviously a global warming fan, exagerratd the truth and lied 18 times i...

Humans Cause Global Warming

Rules: R1 acceptance and opening statements. No points or arguments. R2 beginning arguments no refutation. R3 refutations and arguments. R4 same as R3 R5 rebuttals only points and refutations allowed that you have already made. I cannot stress that enough. I believe the sun is an ever changing celestial body. I do not think that humans can have a big enough impact to change the climate. If the temperature is changing it is the sun....

manmade activity is probably a significant cause of global warming

detractors from MMGW man made global warming, who say it's not ssignificant, and only a hoax, usually rely on sun flares and volanoes. essential facts. one is that studies have shown that the sun cycles have accounted for only a third of the warming that's occurred. the other is that the volcano theorists have never cited sources... and sources that can be found show that they produce only a small amout of heating. i've never seen any sources cited for the volcano theory, but here's wha...

Global Warming Exists

For my opening statement/introduction, I will continue by defining the main topic, global warming. "Global Warming": Is the dramatic increase in global temperature in both the air and ocean. Global warming is caused by the excessive release of co2 (carbon dioxide) into the air. These released amounts of carbon dioxide gather in the ozone layer, which is supposed to protect the world from the sun's dangerous ultra violent rays. When the co2 is in the ozone layer, instead of defending the w...

Human activities are the main cause global warming.

First off, I'd like to thank my opponent for joining this debate and wish them best of luck to them now to clarify a few definitions: (merriam-webster) human- of, relating to, or characteristic of humans activities- the quality or state of being active (in this case, pollution and burning of fossil fuels) main- primary cause- a reason for an action or condition global warming- an increase in the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperatures widely predicted to occur due to an increase in...

Format R1: Acceptance R2: Constructive Case R3: Rebuttals R4: Rebuttals and Conclusion *Edit* This debate was going to be for the beginners tourney, but we have changed topic. But I'd...

Global Warming: Climate Change

juvenalian
Chucknorris5799

We should take action on climate change now because it is predicted that the climate will increase by 4-6 degrees by 2100. Right now the climate is increased by 1 degree Celsius warmer since 1880. In the past extreme heat and drought has caused thousands of deaths. For example in Chicago 1995, 795 people died in a heat wave and in Europe 2003, 30,000 people died from another heat wave. In Northwest China desertification of farming lands causes a loss of 1000 miles annually. The Amazon forests pl...

Resolved: That Global Warming is a manmade problem.

Note to Voters: Take not your own beliefs when voting, vote based on merit of the arguments. Okay, to set the parameters of this debate, my opponent must prove with a preponderance of evidence that men did indeed cause global warming. I must cast a serious doubt that CO2 and other so-called greenhouse gases created by industry cause global warming. Also, this is not about the existence of climate change, the earth is warming, the question is why. Contention 1: CO2 is not correlated to temp...
